Long drives possible again!!! petrol prices slashed!!
Hear ye Hear ye good denizens of the marvelous place known as Karachi. The government in its utmost genorosity has deemed that we have to pay Rs 10 less per litre for petrol from 12am Nov 16th. The new prices of petrol and diesel have fallen now to 66.66 from 76.66 and Diesel 61.14 from 64.14 respectively.
This is great news not only for the people who were overburdened by the rising petrol cost but specially for the lower income classes of the city which will now have their bus fares slashed down due to the falling diesel price.
Although Ogra (i think Ogre is more appropriate) have managed this great feat today, its been a long time coming as the price of crude oil has been down to 53USD a barrel from 140USD for some time now. Still “der aye par durust aye”
I sincerely hope that the roads of this city of lights will be full of cars at night again as it has been looking like a ghost town after 10pm for too long :)
Now if we could get 5500MW from somewhere we seriously have a shot of turning this back into the awesome place it was some years ago.
